Throughout my career, I have helped startups and teams achieve scale and growth, and large enterprises achieve velocity, agility, and innovation. I was recently asked to take stock of both my personal and professional values. It was a tough exercise, but one that eventually led to me taking the leap and choosing to join the team here at Observa.”
